What about all the IE<=8 user agents? Seems like your approach would violate
Ascender's license until they go away completely. If you only use EOTL once
all IE<=8 user agents go away, it's useless.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
